Tell Us What's At Stake Locally In Tuesday's Election

Polls open as voters make town, county and statewide decisions.

Today, East Hampton residents will head to the polls to decide who their leaders in government will be. 

In East Hampton Town, supervisor Larry Cantwell seeks reelection against write-in candidate Martin Drew, while in the town council races, two seats are open among a candidate pool of four. There are also nine spots on the board of town trustees to be decided among 18 qualified candidates. 

On the county level, incumbent Legislator Jay Schneiderman will look to keep his seat in the 1st District against challenger Chris Nuzzi.  

But it's not only about the candidates. 

New Yorkers are voting on six referendums, including whether the mandatory retirement age for Supreme Court and Court of Appeals judges should be increased. Also on the ballot is a Casino Referendum, which, if approved, would allow the state to build up to seven non-Indian casinos, including in the Catskills, which long ago lost its favored status as a retreat for New York City residents.

Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. To find out where you should go to vote, click here.
